Awesome Preview from Image’s Latest Comic: Roche Limit

Our destiny is the stars, and I will lead us there.” Langford Skaargard.

In a grim future when mankind is struggling to find its way to the stars a mysterious energy appears near the Roche Limit colony. Founded by billionaire Langford Skaargard it was meant to be the shiny dream of cosmic exploration. Now, it has become a “melting pot of crime and terrible secrets.” In this terrible future world, Bekkah Hudson goes missing. If humanity thought things were bad now, the search for Bekkah on Roche Limit reveals an unbearably bleak future on the horizon. Dark, bleak, noir science fiction from Image. Sounds awesome. There’s been a lot of genre-blending lately – which can only be a good thing – and future noir seems to be the next big thing.

Roche Limit is a team up from two of Image Comic’s hottest talents: Michael Moreci (Hack/Slash: Son Of Samhain, Hoax Hunters) and Vic Malhotra (X-Files: Year Zero, Thumbprint). “The entire creative team is really encouraged by the tremendous response to Roche Limit so far,” Says Moreci “Commercially and creatively. It’s been great, and we hope to make its release equal to its buildup.” The premise has an interesting edge and the art work looks cool and rough in a typically Image cool way.

For those interested, the Roche Limit (or Radius) is the “distance within which a celestial body, held together only by its own gravity, will disintegrate due to a second celestial body’s tidal forces exceeding the first body’s gravitational self-attraction” (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roche_limit) which might give you a clue where this comic might be heading.

I’m excited to share these preview pages which hints at the world Moreci and Malhotra have created, and its potential darkness:
